Protests linked to the planned eviction of the Liebig34 collective in Berlin's Friedrichshain are possible on Friday, October 9, as authorities seek to evict the squatters' settlement. Police will reportedly cordon off the entrance to Rigear Straße near Bersarinplatz from Thursday, October 8, at 05:00 (local time) through 23:59 on Friday. This 'red zone' will forbid all public gatherings and vehicles from entering.
Sporadic protests linked to the planned eviction have been taking place throughout the week, including the looting of a police station and alleged arson on the metro.
A heightened security presence and localized travel disruptions should be anticipated in the vicinity of the squatter site and any related protests.
Those in Berlin are advised to monitor the situation, avoid demonstrations as a precaution, and heed instructions issued by local authorities
